Dear gang,

Is there a \dimen variable for the local key for the width of a text  
column? Take a look at the attached pdf: Clearly local is different from  
\textwidth and \makeupwidth.

=============
\starttext
\framed[width=\textwidth,frame=on]{\type{\textwidth}}
\framed[width=\makeupwidth,frame=on]{\type{\makeupwidth}}
\framed[width=local,frame=on]{\type{local}}

\startitemize
\item \framed[width=\textwidth,frame=on]{\type{\textwidth}}
\framed[width=\makeupwidth,frame=on]{\type{\makeupwidth}}
\item \framed[width=local,frame=on]{\type{local}}
\stopitemize
\stoptext
=============

I'm working on a macro that depends on the local width and I need to be  
able to do work with fractions of the local width, e.g.

\framed[width=0.9\localwidth]{local width}

Thanks in advance for any advice and

Best wishes
Idris
